I always pack some pans, a shovel, a pick and a hammer. Ive paid for a few tanks of gas now with nuggets and chunks of jade ive stumbled across. Anyone else around here like poking around creeks for free money? Living in British Columbia theres a lot of opportunity to find a bit of gold and other valuables. But you can find stuff in most places on the continent. So what do you guys hunt for in your areas?

We pan the creeks in the Smoky Mtns in NW Georgia and Western North Carolina. You can get permits at the Ranger Stations. SMNP is off limits.

I pan from time to time for gold when I see black soil in creeks where it don't belong. Most of the panning i do though is for diamonds in arkansas. Other than that the only interesting rocks to find here are fossils.
